HORRESQUE – (Germany) Death/Black Metal
It’s the abysses of the human mind, it’s man’s cruel and vile nature that fuels all that is Horresque. Horresque dig deep into classic trademarks of both genres, enriching their sound with an analog and dynamic production. With their
own twist of double-guitar melodies and a broad vocal range of screams and growls, as well as inexorable drumming, this Album does make one thing clear:
Horresque are here to conquer!
